Seattle Residents Surrender Unusual Illegal Weapon to Police (18 pics)



The U.S police encourage citizens to return firearms by incentivizing them with gift cards to the sum of $200. However, Seattle law enforcement officers were shocked when a man brought them this particular weapon instead of a gun or shotgun…


The man returned a FIM-43 Redeye, which is a portable surface-to-air missile system that uses infrared to track its target. This weapon was reportedly left in his home from the previous owners and is most likely illegal.

    These buy back programs are just another way for the US Government to weaken it's population and make them more controllable. All governments stripped their citizens of their arms before a radical change in governmental control was unleashed. Hitler, Mussolini, Mao, Stalin...

    Any citizen that surrenders their weapons for some token gift card or nominal amount of money is a fucking idiot. When some ARMED black dudes break into their homes, rape their wives and children and steal all their valuables, they'll realize that they can't depend on the police to help them and they made themselves helpless to defend themselves.

    Remember: when seconds count, the police are just minutes away.

    I love how people use Hitler as an example of somebody that took away guns. Stop repeating the new in thing and learn some history. Hitler and his party actually gave the Germans back their gun rights that were stripped of them by the previous party.

    obvously that didnt last long. Jews were the targeted ones and I am very sure they didnt get theirs back. Also your not even considering all the other dictators that took weapons from their citizens.
  5. The launcher that was turned in had already been used. As it was a single use device, it was harmless when the owner turned it in.

    At the Seattle buyback private citizens were out bidding the police who were offering $100 for a regular gun and $200 for what they call an assault rifle. They paid in cash too while the police were handing out gift cards. There is more in this article -
